This was an unexpected stop and we spent the whole day here. It was stunning with many interesting artefacts to observe. The grounds were peaceful and relaxing and the village lovely.

The mass looks very moving and is an ideal place for praying and quiet time to reflect. Also full of great statues inside.

Looking very majestic in it's home at the bottom of the valley, the cathedral is a fabulous place to visit for peace and tranquility. Recharge your batteries in the lovely gardens and visit the shop for local crafts. You really appreciate the workmanship of this magnificent building alongside the opposite ruin. Drink in the atmosphere then have a walk around... More

Apart from the sculpture, this is not the place to make a long trip out of Cardiff to visit. The setting is nice, and very peaceful.

It's on Charles St in Cardiff, about 112 miles away from the City of St Davids which everyone seems to be writing about...
